In 2013, The Word On The Street is delighted to announce that it is partnering with The League of Canadian Poets to celebrate Canadian poetry nationwide during festival weekend. This national project will take place in each of The Word On The Street’s five festival cities: Toronto, Kitchener, Halifax, Saskatoon and Lethbridge.
Of the initiative, National Festival Director Nicola Dufficy says, “We are excited to announce a new partnership between The Word On The Street and The League of Canadian Poets. Together, our organizations seek to shine a spotlight on the incredibly talented established and emerging poets that Canada has to offer. Across the nation on festival weekend audiences will discover a poetry program that reflects the distinct local flavour of each of the festival cities and its community.”
